  About this book A comprehensive, quick-reference guide to the diagnosis and management of peripheral artery disease for non-specialists With an aging population subject to an increasing number of health risks, peripheral artery disease (PAD) is on the rise throughout the world. Because of PAD's . Authoritative and comprehensive, Peripheral Arterial Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment provides a detailed accounting of the medical, surgical, and radiological aspects of peripheral arterial obstructive disease, empowering today's clinicians and specialists with the knowledge and skills necessary to diagnose and treat this important but often overlooked disorder. Peripheral artery disease1(PAD) is a condition that occurs when arteries outside the heart and brain become narrowed or obstructed. The most common cause of PAD is a buildup of plaque inside the arteries, called atherosclerosis, which reduces the flow of blood to the extremities. Most people with early PAD do not experience symptoms.   Angiography and Endovascular Therapy for Peripheral Artery Disease Authored by Yoshiaki Yokoi.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is an abnormal narrowing of arteries other than those that supply the heart or brain. When narrowing occurs in the heart, it is called coronary artery disease, and in the brain, it is called cerebrovascular disease. Peripheral artery disease most commonly affects the legs, but other arteries may also be involved – such as those of the arms, neck, or kidneys.

This overview of peripheral arterial disease, or PAD, includes information on atherosclerosis - a hardening and narrowing of the arteries that supply blood to the extremities or major organs, caused by the gradual buildup of plaque in blood vessels. Peripheral arterial disease has a specific listing in the Social Security “blue book” that requires you have PAD with intermittent claudication (pain, discomfort, and fatigue after using the legs) with low blood pressure in your legs. The listing requires you have one of the following pressure rates. Peripheral Arterial Disease. Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is atherosclerosis or clogging of the arteries outside of the heart. This includes the arteries leading to your legs, kidneys, brain, arms, stomach and aorta. People with coronary artery disease are at higher risk of developing peripheral arterial disease, and vice versa. Peripheral artery disease can be a warning sign because if you have plaque in your legs, you probably have it other places, too. You may have build-up in the arteries of your heart. This is called.
